June was a month of ups and also many downs. I went to London for a week and really enjoyed being on a trip after two long covid years (and I bought a few books in the Waterstones, and with a few I mean a lot 😅). But there was also some bad news this month. So, I did read but not as much as I hoped.
I managed to finish 4 books and I’m in the middle of two more. Quite a good start of my 20 books of summer challenge. As ‘Lord John and the hand of devils’ was almost as a whole finished in May, I don’t count it for my list. At the moment I’m at 3/20 after one month out of three. Still some work to do :).
I’m slowly getting through Cloud cuckoo land. It’s not the kind of book that I normally read, but I’m very curious to see how all the layers of the story will unfold. The heretic wind is a fast read about the life of Mary Tudor. I didn’t like it at first, but I’m enjoying more now that I’m in the second half of the book.
Number of pages read: 1.651 pages

Next up: No idea yet 🙂 But I have the ’20 books of summer’ list to guide me
- Labyrinth by Kate Mosse
- Heresy by S.J. Parris
- The lost apothecary by Sarah Penner
- Ariadne by Jennifer Saint
Added to my TBR
- Sepulchre by Kate Mosse
- The master of Measham Hall, this book was in every bookshop in London on display. I didn’t buy it, but it seems interesting
- I still need to try Damian Dibben’s Tomorrow, but his newest book ‘The colour storm‘ seems even more my cup of tea.
How is your summer reading going?
